Recently we had been to a restaurant near my place "Khiva". The food there is so so good. But the best that I adore there is the spread of chutneys that they serve along with the food.

From that spread too this is the chutney I love the most. My family completely freaked out when they say me dissecting the chutney to find out the ingredients that go in it. Any way it was worth it coz even if it has not exactly turned out like them, it is definitely very close.



Chickoo / sapota peeled and finely chopped
1 no
Imli / Tamarind
1 lemon sized ball
Gul / jaggery
1 tbsp
Fresh red chillies deseeded and finely chopped
1 no
Red chilli pdr (optional)                
1/8 tsp
Ginger grated or finely minced
½ tsp



1.       Wash and moisten the tamarind, add jaggery and 1 tbsp water to it and bring it to a boil. Remove off flame and cool.

2.       Remove the pulp of the tamarind; make sure it is not at all watery or runny.

3.       Now to it add all the other ingredients. Mix it up well. Serve as chutney or a dip.
